About Patty

In 1985 I moved to Chaffee County to find a job. I not only found work ( Im a nurse ) I found a wonderful way of life. I raised my children here . We have been fortunate to learn business and share our properties with many wonderful visitors. As a New England native I have enjoyed the many outdoor activities in this area. We love to ski, hike , raft and have settled into the small town atmosphere. The best part of Colorado is the predominate sunshine. We have sunny days year round with robin blue skies. This lifts your sprit everyday ! Thanks for coming , Patty , John Michael and Natalie

Patty purchased this house in 2008

Why Patty chose South Central

I always wanted a property near Mt. Princeton with geothermal hot water. We were blessed with this house which was located on Chalk Creek and had a geothermal spring that produces 120 degree water at six gallons per minute. That's over 300 gallons an hour and over 4000 gallons a day of mineral enriched hot therapeutic soaking water.

What makes this house unique

Imagine your own private natural Hot Spring ! Creekside is nestled in the pines. Its very private. Chaulk Creek rolls by. Other activities are endless, such as hiking, biking, fishing, skiing, rafting, rock hounding, horse back riding, mountaineering, and on and on and on.

At night the stars are spectacular !

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful weekend at the beautiful mountain cabin. Amazing views, wildlife and activities kept us busy. There are no words to explain the pool at night under the stars. We hope to visit again, and make this our getaway for many years to come.

Just what I was looking for.

  • 4 of 5

This is an awesome spot not done any justice by the existing pics.

The house was clean and more than what we needed.

No last minute runs to the grocery store for anything.

The garage let us keep all our kit outside with easy access.

The Colorado Trail being less than a few miles up the road was spot on.

The only thing missing was getting a fire going outside.

Fire danger was high so we probably would not have done that anyway, but a dedicated and manicured spot for that activity is necessary.

We even got some fly fishing in simply walking down and wading through the creek from the house. The water was not as deep as you would want, but peaceful nonetheless.

Great, great place to stay.

A Perfect Ladies Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

I had the great pleasure of spending two nights here with six of my favorite girlfriends. The home was far more beautiful than the pictures led me to believe, and the beds were spacious and comfortable. It snowed the entire time we were there, so we ended up spending the entire weekend in the hot spring. (My skin felt fabulous when we left!) Can't wait to go back when the sun is shining. The creek looks like a lot of fun to play in with my kiddo, or sit and read beside in the sunshine. Our only complaint the whole weekend is that we were not informed that there is no internet or active land line. This definitely left the moms amongst us a little worried that we would be unreachable in the event of an emergency. But, alas, the vacation gods were on our side. Can't wait to book our trip for next year!

Great spacious cabin with added spa benefit

  • 5 of 5

Great time with family surrounded by wildlife in a very comfy cabin.

Spa was great in the snow but need to be careful as it can get hot.

We always love it here! Peaceful, abundant wildlife, beautiful cabin, hot springs​ = HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5

Always a wonderful vacation here. The Chalk Cliffs and valley is a beautiful and peaceful setting to relax in. The cabin has everything we need and sitting by the Chalk Creek in the morning is my favorite part of being here. We always see alot of deer and the hot spring is fabulous, especially on a clear night for stargazing. The owners are also easy to work with and they have always permitted us to check out late, allowing us to maximize our vacation experience, which we greatly appreciate.

We were blown away by this property! The house was absolutely gorgeous! I loved the property and the views. The hot springs was amazing. It felt comfortable, cozy, and private. My boys spent the weekend between the river and the hot springs. We didn't want to leave!
